San Bernardino’s Summer concert series begins tonight

San Bernardino’s Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department has brought back its popular “Sizzlin’ Summer Nights” Concert Series at Perris Hill Park’s Historic Roosevelt Bowl for eight Thursday nights starting June 6 and running through August 1. Now in its third year, the free series will feature music, food, artesian vendors, and activities.

Musical styles during the series will include Funk and Soul, Motown, Country, Big Band Swing, Latin Soul, Top 40, as well as performances by two popular Southern California tribute bands.

“Evenings at the Roosevelt Bowl are amazing, and the Summer Concerts turn it into one big dance party,” said San Bernardino Parks, Recreation, and Community Services Director Lydie Gutfeld.

Kicking off the series on Thursday, June 6, will be Nojac, a San Bernardino based funk and soul group. Nojac has opened for bands such as Tierra and Malo, and their set includes favorites from artists such as James Brown, Stevie Wonder, and Tower of Power.

The concert series includes performances by:

June 13:         Blue Breeze Band (Motown)

June 27          Pulp Vixen Band (Classic Rock)

Gates open at 5:30 pm with each concert starting at 7:30 pm. Seating will be on a first come, first served basis. Activities, booths, food, and vendors are available beginning at 5:30 pm.

One of the new activities this year will be an “Art in the Park Sip and Paint Experience,” in which attendees will have the opportunity to try out their painting skills under the guidance of an instructor while enjoying a beverage.

There will be no performance on Thursday, July 4, in observance of Independence Day.

Perris Hill Park’s Roosevelt Bowl is located at 1003 East Highland Avenue in San Bernardino.
